The posters who pointed out that ranged can shoot through walls do have a valid complaint. I've seen that, especially in Hutball where players can't LoS ranged when they should be able to.

I'm sure the devs will look at this and get it fixed quickly.

Nowhere in your post do you even attempt to indicate why pvp sucks? 7 year wow veteran here who will never go back, you did give me a good laugh however when you said pvp sucks...going back to wow. The pvp imbalance in wow(Cata) is the worst i've seen in any game for years. Not to mention rehashed battlegrounds & epeen arena, pvpers get the raw carrot in wow but be my guest.

PvP in SWTOR is primitive.
Such pride in your failure as a man.

I am really disappointed in the lag issues and lack of opimization for streaming data when multiple players are present. I am also disappointed in the lack of true DR, the Resolve mechanic is utterly abysmal - a true example of an idea that was good on paper but completely sucks in actuality.

Other than that, I really enjoy the warzones, especially huttball - something that I, personally, thought would be completely lame. It's actually quite fun.

That said, huttball can be extremely bad, such as passing to a player on a 2nd story platform and an enemy UNDER them intercepts it somehow (elevation bug). The global delay and constant knockbacks from the entire sith team are also discouraging.

I guess I have to wrap up my input: it'll get better before it gets worse, but it's definitely not very good right now. Enjoyable at times, extremely frustrating at others (e.g you press your interrupt key and it delays, going off after the enemy finishes their cast). In fact, it's more of the latter.
